Las Vegas, Nevada, is a destination well known for its nightlife and 24-hour activity. Dubbed "Sin City," Las Vegas has become synonymous with partying and gambling, but behind the slot machines, the entertainment capital of the world has a quiet, relaxing side. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but these four spas will not be a secret you want to keep.
Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, 3950 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89119
Located inside of the golden Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the beach level, this spa is a destination in itself. The 30,000-square-foot space exudes luxury and leisure. Spa services include customizable massages and body wraps that exfoliate, refresh, and rejuvenate. The spa also offers services for couples and massage enhancements for muscles that require more attention than the regular massage gives.
Visitors can schedule a 25-minute treatment, 50-minute treatment, or 80-minute treatment. What’s great about this spa is that you can experience the facilities whether you are vacationing at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino or not. With the purchase of a day pass, you can revel in the opulent environment and have complete use of the spa’s sauna, heated whirlpools, relaxation lounge, steam room, and other amenities. A one-day pass to the spa costs $30, a three-day pass costs $75, and a five-day pass costs $100. Those who are not staying at the hotel can enjoy the spa for $50 a day.
Spa Mandalay will have you stress-free and reenergized in no time.
Delano Las Vegas, 3940 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89119
As you make your way to the "quiet" side of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to the Mandalay’s all-suite sister hotel, Delano, you get the sense that you are walking away from the glitz and going straight into the glamour. Delano’s Bathhouse Spa contains 12 treatment rooms meant for the spa-goer who wishes to shift slowly into deep relaxation and stay there. Spa services include massages, milk and honey hydrotherapy, facial and nail services, and heat-free bronzing treatments.
The experience begins as soon as you open the doors and stroll up to the counter. In those short steps, you start an aromatherapy treatment that prepares your mind and body to let go. You can choose a 25-minute, 50-minute, or 90-minute service. The spa also offers a 50-minute massage for expectant mothers for $150 and a 60-minute in-room massage for $250. Spa services cost between $5 and $10 more on the weekends than they do during the week.
Bathhouse Spa provides day passes to guests of the Delano Las Vegas and to those who are not staying at the hotel. Bathhouse Spa day passes cannot be used at Spa Mandalay, however.

If you are searching for a spa experience with all the bells and whistles, Red Rock Spa is where you’ll encounter it. Located off the Strip, this spa has a separate entrance that allows you to sidestep the resort’s casino and leave the high energy, bright lights, and noise of Vegas behind you. Whether you are in the relaxation room awaiting your appointment or experiencing one of the many massages, body treatments, and beauty treatments, Red Rock Spa will satisfy all of your senses.
In addition to the usual spa services, Red Rock offers a number of healing treatments. These include body and facial acupuncture, cupping, and acupressure, and they are intended to promote health and well-being. You can experience an Ashiatsu massage, during which your therapist will massage you with their feet while holding on to a bar on the ceiling. The spa also offers a 50-minute energy balance massage; it costs $165 during the week and $170 on weekends.
Red Rock Spa is home to a state-of-the-art fitness center as well. The center offers both ordinary vinyasa yoga classes and extraordinary wall yoga classes that support increased stretching of muscles. You can opt for musical meditation provided by an experienced violinist during your session.
This spa not only caters to visitors to Las Vegas but offers a 20 percent discount to Las Vegas residents.
"You can receive luxury without breaking your wallet. The place is relaxing, and I can spend an entire day there … and never worry about the outside world," said Tracey Cheatham McIntire, M.D., a Las Vegas resident.
